INTRODUCTION. 




T will probably answer every purpose for which 

this Introduction may be consulted if I simply 

repeat here, with such additions as may be 

necessary, what has already been printed in 

previous volumes containing these lists of the wills, &c., 

now preserved at the Probate Court, Chester. 

By the publication of this volume, the seventh of the 
series, the list of the wills, inventories, and administration 
bonds now preserved at Chester is brought down to the 
year 1760. The previous volumes, with their respective 
numbers in the series of the Society's publications, are as 
follows: — ^Vol. XL, Index to the Wills and Inventories at 
Chester, 1545 to 1620; Vol. IV., Index to the Wills and 
Inventories at Chester, 162 1 to 1650; Vol. XV., Index to 
the Wills and Inventories at Chester, 1660 to 1680; Vol. 
XVIII., Index to the Wills and Inventories at Chester, 
168 1 to 1700; Vol. XX., Index to the Wills and Inven- 
tories at Chester, 1701 to 1720; and Vol. XXII., Index to 
the Wills and Inventories at Chester, 1721 to 1740. In 
the several introductions to these volumes an account will 
be found of the wills now preserved at the Probate Court, . 
Chester, which it is not necessary to repeat here. The 
area over which the Bishop of Chester had at this time 
jurisdiction was tb^ same as at the foundation of the see

of Chester, the whole of Lancashire and Cheshire, together 
with portions of Cumberland, Yorkshire, and Flintshire. 
But the district from which the wills in the following pages 
were derived consisted of Cheshire, part of Flintsjiire, and 
that portion of Lancashire to the south of the river Ribble, 
which flows through Preston. The wills from the rest of 
the diocese, including Lancashire to the north of the 
Ribble and those portions of Cumberland and Yorkshire 
included within the diocese of Chester, were proved at 
Richmond in Yorkshire before an official, the Commissary 
of Richmond, appointed by the Bishop of Chester, and 
subject to his supervision.

The following points are commended to the attention of those 
using this book: — 

/. In some cases inventories appear to have become detached 
from the origincU wills ^ and so have been placed in differsnt 
bundles and indexed under different years. This list^ however^ 
being an alphabetical one, stuh cases will be speedily detected, 
and it will be easy to replete the inventories in their proper 
places, 

2. Wlure the word " Inv" occurs, it signifies tJtat tfie 
deceased Iiad most probably died intestate, and that an inven- 
tory of his goods liad been filed and administration granted 
to his representatives. Wliere the word "Admon" occurs, it 
shows that an administration bond had been filed as well. 
In all otiter cases the wills t/iemselves are extant, either with 
or without the accompanying inventories, 

. J, It is to be noted tliat in the Probate Court of Cluster 
the original wills up to i8j8 (and not official transcripts, as 
in many other Probate Courts) are those shown to enquirers, 

/J., Owing to tJte original spelling of the wills having been 
followed in the M,S, Index, and allowing for possible mis- 
readings, enquirers are particularly desired to search for any 
name bearing a resemblance to titat they are looking for, as 
for example Leigh for Legh or Lee, Newall for Nowall, 
Houghton for Haughton, &c., &c. As far as possible this 
has been indicated by cross references in this list. Words 
now spelt with an i then frequently had y, 

5. This list contains all the wills, inventories, and ad- 
ministration bonds now known to be preserved at the Probate 
Court, Cluster, between the years ly^i and 1760 inclusive. It 
is in continuation of volumes 2, ^, 75, 18, 20, and 22 (Indices 
to tlu Wills and Inventories now preserved at Chester, IS45 
to 1620, 1621 to 1650, 1660 to 1680, 1681 to 1700, 1701 to 
1720, and 1721 to 174.0), and will be followed by others, 
bringing the lists down to 1780, or possibly 1800, 

6. In an Appendix will be found the list of all the tvills, 
proved between 17/f.i and 1760, in which the atnount of per- 
sonalty was less than £4^0, Tluse tvills, which were proved 
in the Rural Deans' Courts, are generally called " Infra" 
wills, and there are none known of earlier date titan 1660, 
They are kept distinct from the other wills, and when 
enquired for it is necessary to clearly describe them as being 
^^ Infra"' and not ordinary wills, 

7. This volume alone, including the Appendix, is an 
Index to about thirteen tlwusand documents.

Report for the Year 1890-91. 

Read at the Annual Meetings Jield in the Audit Room of the 
Clietham Hospital, Manchester, December //.thy i8gi. 



Owing to the unexpected delay in completing Vol. XXL, 
no volumes have been delivered to the members since the 
Annual Meeting held on the Sth November, 1890. The 
two volumes for 1889-90, XXI. and XXII., are, however, 
now ready, and will be issued to the members within the next 
few weeks. Copies of both are now exhibited. Vol. XXI. is 
the first volume of the Registers of the parish of Leyland, 
near Preston. This volume, which has been edited by the 
Rev. W. Stuart White, M.A., senior curate of the parish, 
commences in 1622 and comes down to the end of the year 
1 7 10. The earliest volume of the Leyland Registers, which 
probably commenced about the year 1558, is now unfortu- 
nately lost, and the existing register only begins in 1653. 
A search in the Episcopal Registry at Chester has only 
brought to light seven official "transcripts" during the whole 
of the long period for which the Register is missing. These 
** transcripts" should have been regularly sent to the Bishop 
of the Diocese year by year, but the ordinance enforcing this 
was frequently neglected, and even when sent they were not 
well looked after or carefully preserved. It has therefore only 
been possible to print these transcripts for the following years: 
1622, 1629, 1630, 1637, 1639, 1640, and 1641. The entries in 
these transcripts and in the Leyland Register, 1653 to 1710, 
are very voluminous and have filled a volume of over three 
hundred pages. Many of them are of much interest, and the 
Editor has enhanced their value by appending very full notes 
involving much trouble and research, but which add very 
greatly to the usefulness of the volume. Mr. White had 
intended to prefix a full Introduction, dealing at some length 



iv Report of the Society. 

with the history of the parish, the list of the vicars, the monu- 
mental inscriptions, and other matters ; but the volume being 
already so large, this has been held over for another occasion. 

Vol. XXII. is the Index to the Wills, Administrations, and 
Inventories now preserved at Chester, from 1721 to 1740, 
and has, like the previous Lists of Wills at Chester, been 
edited by Mr. J. P. Earwaker. By the publication of this 
volume the complete list of all the Wills, relating to Lancashire 
and Cheshire, known to be preserved at Chester, from the 
earliest date, 1545, down to the year 1740, is now in the hands 
of the members of the Society. The list extends to six 
printed volumes, and the total number of Wills and Adminis- 
trations there indexed is nearly 1 10,000 ! The names being 
arranged alphabetically, it is now possible for anyone to 
ascertain what Wills, relating to any particular family, are now 
preserved at Chester, and that too without the necessity of a 
visit to Chester, and a laborious search through each year's 
Index in the Probate Registry there. The Council hope to 
continue the printing of these lists from time to time down to 
the year 1780 or possibly 1800. As pointed out in the last 
Annual Report, the example set by this Society has been 
and is being followed by many other Societies in various 
parts of England. 

As already announced, the volumes for the year 1890-91 
will be. "the Lancashire Lay Subsidies," Henry III. to 
Edward I., by Mr. J. A. C Vincent, and the first volume 
of the " Lancashire Royalist Composition Papers " (arranged 
alphabetically, A to F), edited by the Rev. J. H. Stanning, 
M.A., Vicar of Leigh. The method of arranging, and the 
value of this class of local records were described in the 
Report for 1887 in the following terms, which may be 
repeated here : " The simplest arrangement will probably be 
an alphabetical one, as that will bring the many scattered 
documents together under the name of the person to whom 
they relate. Much light is thrown by these records on the 
tyrannical and arbitrary means employed by those in 
authority in confiscating the property of the Royalists, and 
the hardships that the latter had to undergo. These Royalist 
Composition Papers, relating as they do to a period (1644 to 
1652) of very great public interest, will make singularly 
valuable volumes for the history of both Lancashire and 
Cheshire, and will supply a mass of information entirely new, 
the very existence of which, up to a few years ago, was 
unsuspected." The printing of the Royalist Composition 
Papers has already commenced, and the Lancashire Lay 



Report of the Society, 



Subsidies is almost finished printing. The Council also pro- 
pose to print shortly a volume of " Miscellanies," which will 
contain several records of much local value, to be selected from 
a number of documents such as Subsidy Rolls, Lists of Popish 
Recusants, &c., now in the hands of the Hon. Secretary. 

The two books for the year 1891-92 will probably be the 
first volume of the Clitheroe Court Rolls, edited by Mr. A. 
J. Robinson and Mr. W. Ecroyd, and either the volume of 
" Miscellanies" or else "the Plundered Ministers' Accounts for 
Lancashire and Cheshire," to be edited by Mr. W. A. Shaw.

tions already printed or arranged for, up to the present 
time: —

The last four volumes are those now in hand. 

Two volumes have been issued in each year, except on 
two occasions, when a single volume of more than average 
thickness was substituted for them. 

In previous Reports attention has been directed to the 
various books which the Council hope to be able to issue 
in future years. Of these, perhaps the most important is the 
Index to the Raines MSS., now in the Chetham Library, 
Manchester, and to the Piccope, Palmer, Barritt, and other 
local MSS. there, which will form the first of a series of 
volumes, describing the contents of the various MSS. relating 
to Lancashire and Cheshire, now preserved in the different 
public libraries in the two counties. Mr, J. E. Tinkler, 
recently Librarian at the Chetham Library, completed the 
Index to the 45 folio volumes of the Raines MSS., but the 
Council have not as yet been able to have Indices made 
to the other MSS. in the Chetham Library, so as to form a 
complete record of the valuable MS. material for local history 
there preserved. When this is done, the volume will be 
printed and issued. 

As already mentioned, the important Court Rolls of 
the great Honor of Clitheroe, co. Lancaster, have during 
the past few years been carefully examined by two 
members of the Society, Mr. A. J. Robinson, of Clitheroe 
Castle, and Mr. W. Ecroyd, of Burnley, who have kindly 
agreed to allow the results of their labours to be printed by 
this Society. The great quantity of material, and the trouble 
of making such selections as will show the true value of 
these ancient Rolls, are difficulties which had to be overcome, 
and as already announced the first volume, containing all the 
early rolls down to the time of Henry VIII., will be sent to 
the printer directly. 

The Council hope to obtain permission to print the Early 
Marriage Licences relating to Lancashire and Cheshire, 
preserved in the Bishop's Registry, Chester, which begin in 



Report of tJie Society. vii 

1608. These Marriage Licences contain information of great 
genealogical value, which well deserves to be placed on 
permanent record. They are also of use in supplying the 
names of the local clergy who were authorised to celebrate 
these marriages. 

As announced in the last Report, several important MSS. 
have recently been offered to the Council for publication, 
such as the *' Plundered Ministers' Accounts " for Lancashire 
and Cheshire during the Civil War and Commonwealth period, 
to be edited by Mr. W. A. Shaw, M.A. ; the early Registers 
of Whalley, co. Lancaster, commencing 1538, to be edited by 
Mr. W. A. Abram ; and the Roll of the Freemen of the City 
of Chester, to be edited by Mr. T. Cann Hughes, B. A. These 
are before the Council, whose desire is to print such records 
as will be found of interest to the great majority of the 
members of the Society, rather than those which are likely to 
be of service to a few only. 

It has also been decided by the Council to print the lists 
of the North Lancashire Wills subsequent to the year 1748, 
now preserved at the Probate Court, Lancaster. These will 
be in continuation of the two volumes of the "Lancashire 
Wills proved at Richmond," 1457 to 1748, issued by the 
Society a few years ago and edited by Lt.-Col. Fishwick. 
The President of the Probate Division of the High Court of 
Justice has granted permission to transcribe the existing 
Indices down to 1791, and this work will shortly be started. 

The Society has- lost many of its members by death and 
other causes during the past few years, and the Council wish 
to direct special attention to the fact that the number of 
members is now much below the 350 names, to which the 
Society is limited, and they are most anxious that this should 
be remedied. The volumes issued by the Society are of 
great value for the history of Lancashire and Cheshire, and 
the Council think it cannot be a difficult matter for the 
present members to interest their friends in a Society, which 
has done and is doing such good work. 

1^^ The Council must again refer to Rule 5, under which 
no volume can be delivered to any member whose subscrip- 
tion is in arrear.
